and
  WHEREAS, Faith Fishkin and Melissa Voellm are members of  Girl  Scouts

  WHEREAS,  America  has  achieved her greatest heights of glory through

and
  WHEREAS, These outstanding young women have been involved in  Scouting
for  years,  have lived up to Scouting's ideals and have attained all of

  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Faith Fishkin, Melissa Voellm, and Sara Stiklickas.
